Many of the engines from abroad will fall under the category of oil engines too, maybe they would be a bit too similar for consecutive years? Perhaps combine them and then come up with something different for 2014. I'm just suggesting and i'm really unlikely to be attending apart from for the 2015 flame ignition show we would make the trip for that!

Wow an inverted exposition would be a big effort, getting everyone pitched on the roof and then persuading the oilers to drip upwards nevermind trying to pour gas and not get it in your face. I think it might be better to have an expo the right way up

Stickney is nice but there aren't many different kinds just big ones and little ones still would be an awesome sight.

What the Hell Joe!!

Is it pick on the Canadian day??
Did I miss the memo??

lol

usually when I want to run an engine inverted I just get a hopper cooled GSM horizontal and rest it on the hopper and the crank guard, I never realized those were load bearing crank guards...

I thought every day was badger a Canuck day

I think you've got to bolt it down to the roof to be safe J like they do in Australia Without teasing an inverted theme would be quite a sight, bet I haven't seen 10 inverted engines in my life.

I am one of the only collectors to show diesels in my neck of the woods. A show centered around HVID's and other compression ignition engines would certainly be noteworthy. Maybe we could even draw a few more collectors over to the "DARK SIDE"

2014 will be the 100th anniversary of the first engines being built by Hercules. I'd like to see 2014 featuring Hercules built engine. I know for many of you you wouldn't give a Hercules a second look but there are a lot more collectors who have a Hercules built engine than have a "rare" one of a kind gizmo. How many of you cut your teeth on a Hercules? Don't get me wrong, I like the rair engines but give the common man a chance to fill special too.
Maybe if you feature English built engines you could also feature a more common engine as there can't be that many English built engine out there?
A couple of years ago when Economy's 100th anniversary was celebrated a lot of Economy engines showed up.

I am in favor of a (Oil Expo Show). Theres nothing better that a M&W puking oil and smoke everywhere. My kind of show. We could have the ice cream shop selling mask for a few extra bucks for the museum.

Ooooohhh

What about Alamo??

They cover rare (from the early hot tube models)
to relatively common and easily accessible (blue line)

and everywhere in between...

The Temple is in hiding Don, we've been trying to get the paint off a few engines with the new needle scaler Dick L. told us to get and the Temple was covered up to keep it clean.

I think dad wants to work on the battery saver this winter, if we get the Tangye & Lambert back together, and get the Model apart...

it could be a busy winter!!

Glad someone finally put 2013 with the HVID show. At the beginning I wasn't sure if they were talking about next summer (2012) or ?????.

I liked Wayne's idea of some year featuring foreign engines. Although some of you were thinking English oil engines, there were a lot of gas engines as well and plenty of interesting engines across the channel.

I think people would be surprised at the number of foreign engines that are in North America.

Unfortunately, Coolspring is all the way across the country for me, and would be a long ways to haul engines to show.

I thought steam was the dark side, diesel is more like the charcoal side!!

Hvids are good but we need a Coolspring “Calling of the 2-Strokes” year. That’d be a fun & smokey mess….imagine all the black spots on the grass.
